Sample Overview

This game, while functional, leaves room for expansion. Several non-essential features and systems aren't finished. This makes it easier and quicker to understand the structure of the game, and how the pieces fit together to provide a rich gaming experience.

Platformer includes the following features:

  • Cross-platform support for Windows, Xbox 360, and Windows Phone 7.
  • Control of the player character by using the keyboard or gamepad, or the accelerometer and touch on Windows Phone 7.
  • Simple physics modeling (falling and jumping) and dynamic collision checking.
  • Production-level sprite sheets, sound effects, and other game assets.
  • High- and low-resolution assets, and an additional content project containing audio assets.
